Great bartender, friendly, personable and engaging. A great place to meet up with friends, grab a drink, eat at the bar, and order black sambuca. Delicious!

A very subpar dining experience ? the chips were stale, the service was poor (water was never refilled, we were never asked how the meal was or if we needed something else). Sadly I doubt I will ever return. I’m giving two stars because the place was clean, nicely decorated, and the staff were friendly overall.


Stopped in for drinks and appetizers. Good food and mixed drinks and atmosphere was nice with a lot of traffic and a wall above of tvs and lots of beers on tap as seen in pic. Recommended

My daughter & I came for appetizers & cocktails. The server was very informative & friendly. The service we received couldn’t be better. The appetizers were good & more then enough for 2 adults.

Food and service was great! Beer selection is very good and the atmosphere here is nice. It was great to see the place bustling with people again. Outdoor patio is nice on a late summer evening. We love this place and haven’t had a bad meal here.

Great burgers and calamari-some issues with special orders but delicious food with large portions


Stopped in for late lunch after visiting area relative. Started with nachos which were OK. Cheese was the machine melted little league game type. Had Penne Vodka with chicken. Definitely wasn't a vodka sauce. more like a marinara, pasta was under cooked. Chicken was tough. Kitchen was especially slow as it was a solid 15 minute wait for food. Not impressed

David Sulz

Wait staff was very friendly and attentive. Had a burger but was a little undercooked for my liking.


Popped in to get a quick lunch and this combo definitely didn't disappoint. Eli's always offer a nice relaxed setting and great service. You have got to try these 2 the classic mac and cheese and the pork quesadila. The mac and cheese comes out in a individual cast iron skillet piping hot, gooey and cheesy. The pork quesadila is rich with bbq smokey flavor. Top it all off with one off the many draft selections that Eli's has to offer and your good to go !
